1991: Burnaby Correctional Centre for Women opens

Coinciding with the 1989 Task Force on Federally Sentenced Women, the Burnaby Correctional Centre for Women (BCCW) adhered to principles embodied in the task force report and incarcerated provincial and federally sentenced inmates.

BCCW replaced Lakeside Correctional Centre (on the Oakalla site) and Lynda Williams Community Correctional Centre. The facility had a capacity of 142 open and secure beds. The design incorporated the living unit concept and high-tech security measures. BCCW closed in March 2004.
